The recent price weakness triggered by Mt. Gox and the German Government’s selling pressure was likely perceived as a buying opportunity, as evidenced by the inflow of $441 million in digital asset investment products over the past week.

During the same period, Exchange Traded Products (ETPs) recorded low volumes of $7.9 billion for the week, which is consistent with the usual summer dip. This also represents a 17% lower participation rate compared to the total market for trusted exchanges.
